Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My husband is in Auckland hospital and I have been told today yes told today that they will not discharge him unless 3 people take him up the stairs and that I have 24 hrs care by two people and a hoist to get him out of bed. I have looked after my husband for the past 2 years being his full carer and have a full-time job. What are our rights, both my husband and myself won't him to come home and at least try to see if we can cope together before making that major leap to private home where we will be separated. This will change both our lives.
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: I was only told today and we did not have a comprehensive meeting, my husband was not present nor was his son,We were unaware of what we were about to be told
JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?
Customer: Wrong Country we are in New Zealand sorry
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I need to know that I am talking to a NZ lawyer

The final decision on this is actually up to you and your family. I would suggest to ask to have a full meeting with you and your son and your husband, and the medical people, and discuss this as a group. In the meantime you can investigate whether it will be possible to make changes at home to sort this out to make it safe for him, and there may be WINZ subsidies for the equipment, if you decide to go down that route
